We started the day with a hunt for breakfast, wich turned out to be a difficult task. Nothing was open so early in the morning and others were just on holidays. Probably due to the fact that the Ford factory was at a stand still the restaurants had their holidays synced to that. As a result we had to return to IHOP for a second breakfast. Unexpectedly this time what I got was tasty. I was most pleased with the filled french toast with strawberries. It was delicious.
Next stop was downtown Detroit. After driving to the city center we found ourselves a tight fit parking spot from one of the many parking facilities. Locating the visitor center for starters was confusing. The building was easy to find but in nowhere did it say what floor to go to… We got some directions from a shopkeeper and got our maps and advice.

Breakfast as a goal we locate the nearest IHOP. The name itself promises a lot, International House of Pancakes, how could that be bad? Well it was decent. I got crepes and a breakfast combo of eggs and hash browns. We also ordered the New York cheesecake pancakes to share. Out of all of these I liked the hash browns the best wich is a bit alarming. Mostly everything was just a bit bland.
Waking up in London, the one in Canada, we set our sights for some poutine. I mean have you really been to Canada before you’ve tried it? I think not. With the help of TripAdvisor we headed to The Early Bird. With an amazing decor like theirs just seeing the place is enough on its own. Luckily we didn’t have to settle for just seeing, we also got some breakfast.

Poutine with duck gravy
I went for the poutine with the duck gravy. The dish didn’t look too appetizing but tasted amazing. Just the right amount of salt and perfect ratio of fries, cheese curds and gravy. Would definitely recommend for others and come back for more myself. Read more
